For long, the entire world has been wary of North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un. There have been various speculations about the dictatorial way in which he runs the nation as well as his international policies. However, now a new speculation has been put forth by an analyst from the United States. While the entire world is waiting with bated breath for the announcement of a potent vaccine to achieve immunisation against the deadly COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus, Russia had announced that it is registering 2 vaccine candidates and China had also revealed that it had obtained a potential vaccine against the Corona Virus.
The speculation by the US analyst is that China has supplied North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his family with their experimental Corona Virus vaccine! The analyst - Harry Kazianis, a North Korea expert at the Center for the National Interest think-tank in Washington, claims that the Kim family and several senior officials of the North Korea government have been vaccinated. He claims this information as being received from two unidentified Japanese sources. Kazianis has also reportedly stated that it is as yet unclear as to which Chinese company supplied the vaccine and whether it had been verified to be safe.
In an article written by Kazianis, he has stated, "Kim Jong Un and multiple other high-ranking officials within the Kim family and leadership network have been vaccinated for Coronavirus within the last two to three weeks thanks to a vaccine candidate supplied by the Chinese government." According to data available currently with the US, there are three known Chinese Covid vaccine makers, including Sinovac Biotech Ltd., CanSinoBio and Sinopharm Group. However, till date there has been no announcement or data about these three companies having conducted Phase 3 trials for their vaccine candidates. However, contradicting these claims by Kazianis, some experts state that Kim Jong Un would not go in for a vaccine that has not proven effective and that he would rather go for a proven European vaccine than opt for an untested Chinese candidate!
